Dave Donahue, of Centerburg, Ohio, was a champion for Farm Science Review throughout his career as national show manager for John Deere. He was instrumental in elevating the national recognition of FSR among the Farm Show Council, other major ag equipment manufacturers - such as Case IH, New Holland and AGCO - and other exhibitors. Dave maintained a close relationship with the show management team, providing his input, praises and concerns from an exhibitor point-of-view to help better the show for everyone involved. Additionally, he initiated the agreement with Ag-Pro (formerly JD Equipment) in London that provides FSR with a continued supply of new and innovative agricultural and landscaping equipment to maintain the Molly Caren Agricultural Center and the show’s farming operation. Dave’s ongoing support of Farm Science Review has played a pivotal role in making the show relevant year after year within the ag industry and to countless visitors.
Congratulations, Dave, on your induction into the Farm Science Review Hall of Fame!
Mike Miller, of London, Ohio, has been a longtime exhibitor and supporter of Farm Science Review in his role as president of MRC Sales and Service. Aside from donating countless hours of labor, his connections with industry vendors across the country have been invaluable to the FSR management team and has resulted in the procurement of special pricing and donations of equipment. Mike’s largest contributions to FSR - both literally and figuratively - have taken shape at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center’s grain facility, including the construction of a highly-automated grain dryer and then subsequent major renovations to the grain handling and storage structures in 2014. Under Mike’s leadership, this project added 100,000 bushels of new grain storage and high-capacity equipment to accommodate FSR’s modern farm operations. His contributions to FSR continue to this day, as does his high regard in the millwright industry across the country. Mike’s willingness to always lend a helping hand at FSR, whether it’s after-hours or during harvest, is critical to Farm Science Review’s successful farming operation.
Congratulations, Mike, on your induction into the Farm Science Review Hall of Fame!
